Song Author Stan Jones Lyrics by: Stan Jones Performer: Sons Of The Pioneers Submitted by: halldorkrj
Capo on fret 4

(for original key of C#)

An [Am]old cowboy went ridin' out one [C]dark and windy day,
at [Am]bolder ridge he rested as he [C]went along his way
when [Am]all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
[F]driving through the ragged skies and [Dm]up a cloudy [Am]draw.

Yipie, i, [C]ay,  
Yipie i [Am]oh   
[F]Ghost riders [Dm]in the [Am]sky.   

Their [Am]brands were still on fire and their [C]hooves were made of steel
their [Am]horns were black and shiny and their [C]hot breath he could feel
a [Am]bolt of fear cut through him as they thundered through the sky
For he [F]saw the riders coming hard and he [Dm]heard their mournful [Am]cry   

Yipie, i, [C]ay,  
Yipie i [Am]oh   
[F]Ghost riders [Dm]in the [Am]sky.   

As the [Am]riders loped on by him he [C]heard one call his name
if [Am]you want to save your soul from hell a [C]riding on our range
cow[Am]boy change your ways today or with us you will ride,
[F]driving with the devils herd [Dm]across this moonlit [Am]sky.   

Yipie, i, [C]ay,  
Yipie i [Am]oh   
[F]Ghost riders [Dm]in the [Am]sky.   

Their [Am]face was drawn their eyes were blurred their [C]shirts all soaked with sweat.
He's [Am]ridin' hard to catch that herd but [C]he 'aint caught 'em yet
'cause they've [Am]all to ride forever on that range up in the sky
oh, the [F]horses snortin’ fire as they [Dm]ride hard hear them [Am]cry   

Yipie, i, [C]ay,  
Yipie i [Am]oh   
[F]Ghost riders [Dm]in the [Am]sky.

An old cowboy went ridin' out one dark and windy day,
at bolder ridge he rested as he went along his way
when all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
driving through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw.

Yipie, i, ay,
Yipie i oh
Ghost riders in the sky.

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
a bolt of fear cut through him as they thundered through the sky
For he saw the riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry

Yipie, i, ay,
Yipie i oh
Ghost riders in the sky.

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
if you want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride,
driving with the devils herd across this moonlit sky.

Yipie, i, ay,
Yipie i oh
Ghost riders in the sky.

Their face was drawn their eyes were blurred their shirts all soaked with sweat.
He's ridin' hard to catch that herd but he 'aint caught 'em yet
'cause they've all to ride forever on that range up in the sky
oh, the horses snortin’ fire as they ride hard hear them cry

Yipie, i, ay,
Yipie i oh
Ghost riders in the sky.
